DGN Hosts Wellness Fair for Students and Teachers

DGN Hosts Wellness Fair for Students and Teachers

Skylar Meents and Emily Blanchard assist at the American Heart Association booth. More than 2,000 students and faculty participated in Wellness Fair activities at DGN.

North High hosted their Wellness Fair on Thursday, April 26th, 2018. More than 2,000 students and faculty participated in Wellness Fair activities and more than 40 community organizations/vendors attended.

The Wellness Fair included informational booths, demonstrations, an array of healthy snack foods and activities for students of health, physical education and drivers education classes. Student volunteers, part of the Physical Education Leaders program, assisted vendors at their booths and engaged with their peers to promote the organization and their wellness ideas.

“One of the goals of our program is to provide students the tools to live an active and healthy lifestyle," Physical Education Department Chair Courtney White said. "The wellness fair is an excellent opportunity for area fitness groups, wellness groups, health service organizations, non-profit organizations, and health food stores to connect with the students of North High to showcase programs and services aimed at improving the lives of teens and their families.”

The Wellness Fair is one of many ways North High instills wellness into the lifestyles of students and staff. Click here to watch a recent video of North High’s Wellness Wednesday program.
